Micron Technology today introduced Micron 9200 Series of NVMe SSDs, the company's latest flagship performance solid-state storage family.
The new Micron 9200 SSD combines the cost-effective capacity of 3D NAND with the throughput and response time of the NVM Express (NVMe) protocol.
"The Micron 9200 Series of NVMe SSDs are specially designed to deliver the blazing fast speeds, low-latency, and high-capacity needed to handle massive files, images and multimedia assets created by today's complex application workloads," said Eric Endebrock, vice president SSD and Systems, Storage Business Unit, Micron Technology, Inc.
Architecture combining NVMe protocols on a PCIe connection enables the Micron 9200 SSD to deliver fast enterprise flash performance - up to 10X faster than the typical SATA SSDs on the market - while conserving power and rack space with its 3D NAND high-density storage. Moreover, the Micron 9200 is one of the first NVMe SSDs on the market with a capacity exceeding 10TB.
The Micron 9200 SSD family is designed as the storage foundation for the Micron SolidScale platform. With the 9200, SolidScale will be capable of over 250TB per node, scaling over 5PB per rack of the highest performance NVMe SSD available in shared storage today.
The new SSD delivers sequential read/write transfer speeds up to 5.5 and 3.5 GB/s. Random read/write transfer speeds reach up to 900K and 275K IOPS to turn data into information with low latency and high performance.
Micron 9200 SSDs are expected to be generally available at the end of August 2017.
